now i can say my truck has been "battle hardened". you dont see many trucks, let alone rangers survive a drop like that and drive away.

*goes to kiss skidplates*

my lvl2 is still the coolest ranger around.... even with dents...

a good size dent on the rear bed and some dents on the roof panel. towards the passenger side, it looks like the roof has been smashed in a little. not really noticeable. there is a good ding just above the passenger side A-pilar.

i got a question though. are Yucca poisonous? cos some places where i got poked at, they're stiff as hell (my wrist for example, it didnt hurt yesterday, but now i can bareky move it). another area seemed to have gotten swollen. anyone knows?

no i dont think they are, but they usually do itch and puff up kinda like a mosquito. but who knows what was on them or bugs that bit you.. lol

and your wrist may be stiff from the crash, maybe you twisted it alittle

Taking out the ABS fuse doesn't hurt anything?
